Baby Steps in Hand Printing!
The results of my first attempt at hand-printing fabric! I have had so much fun starting on this learning curve. I find the silhouettes of decorative objects fascinating and so I used these as the basis for my design. I cut the stencil out plastic foam packaging [It was a dream to cut, but a bit soft to work with as a stencil]: I applied the paint with a brush, allowed it to dry and then ironed it on the back to set it. I have a lot more designs in my head and on paper. Perhaps I will try getting some of them silk screened or printed!!??. Thanks Jesse for the good idea! Have a look here and here and here at Jezzeblog to see other recent prints from all over the place.
